Treasure Island

Robert Louis Stevenson


This has always been one of my favourite novels and I have read it probably ten times, but previously translated in Finnish, now first time in original language (English). Classic story about Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver and buried treasure of Captain Flint is most likely best known pirate story in history of literature.

My opinion

Simply a great book. Some parts of the story twists are obvious, but some for the first time reader (I think) might be surprising. Characters are interesting and feel like a realistic human beens. Style of a language story is written is showing some serious mastery of words.

For who?

Anyone who even remotely like novels.
